Behavioral Momentum Theory as it Relates to Response Persistence and Resurgence

Part of the Educator and Behavior Analyst Continuing Education Seminar Series 2014-2015

Seminars focus on educational and behavior support applications.

Presenter: Melanie DuBard, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Description: There has been a renewed interest in behavioral momentum theory as it relates to response persistence and resurgence. Previous research has shown that behavioral resistance to extinction depends on variables related to reinforcement of those behaviors at the baseline level (e.g., rate of reinforcement, magnitude, etc.). More recently, relapse of problem behaviors has also been shown to relate to the baseline stimulus-reinforcer relationship. We will discuss these findings along with implications for the treatment of severe problem behaviors.

All seminars are approved for two (2) continuing education credits by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

Registration is required for May employees and guests. Space will be limited; advanced reservations are recommended.
